XDS Boss 5.0 (2019)

The Boss product range has been developed for riders who want an upper-level mountain bike.

The Boss is for those consumers who are focused on a high-quality frame, ride quality and component package. In short, if you’re driven by value then you should consider the Boss.

XDS’s Boss 4.0, specifically, has been designed for the rider who wants to spend their time between riding amateur mountain bike trails, Rail Trails (like the Warburton Rail Trail) and bike paths. Or those that simply want a great quality mountain bike.

Over the last year, the popularity and success of the Boss range have been overwhelming.

The Boss 4.0 distinguishes itself from its nearest competitors in the engineering and quality of its frame. It also delivers some high-end finishes that are rarely, if ever, seen at this price point, such as:

  1. The frame uses XDS’s lightest aluminium (called X6); it’s 10% lighter than many competitors frames and 35% stronger.

  2. Internal gear and brake cable routing are used to create a super-clean finish. Cables are also less susceptible to dirt, mud, dust and grit ‘ everything that adversely influences gear shifting quality.

  3. Tapered head (1.5 inches at the bottom and 1.125 inches top), creates a stronger junction at the front of the bike. Welds surface areas are increased and down tube profile is made larger.

  4. Smooth welds are very labour intensive. So it’s a testament to how much effort XDS put into creating the Boss 4.0. The throat of the weld is also wider to create a stronger connection between the chassis’ tubes.

  5. Slim seat stays and slim 27.2mm seat post, helps induce vertical flex in the Boss 4.0 frame; resulting in more comfort for the rider.

  6. A stiffer bottom bracket (where the pedals This increases the torsional stiffness of the frame, ensuring every effort is rewarded with forward motion.

Shimano Alivio components are used in the Boss 4.0 package. These components sit at the upper end of Shimano’s recreational range. It’s perfect for the rider, who wants a good quality first-time mountain bike to see if they will enjoy mountain biking. Designed to tackle easier mountain bike trails through to Blue-Square intermediate level trails such as those at Lysterfield Mountain Bike Park.

Drivetrain components use a total of 27-gears and result in smooth gear changes under load for the beginner rider. The Shimano Alivio Shadow derailleur is a far more robust version of Shimano’s recreational derailleurs; bigger linkages helps the derailleur change smoothly under load.

Why do we call the derailleur Shadow?

Because it sits in the shadow of the bike’s frame; reducing the likelihood of damage done by rocks and trees.

Equipped with an SR Suntour XCR suspension fork, the suspension has 100mm travel and comes with a lockout lever to turn the suspension off when it’s not needed, such as on smooth bike paths and smooth climbs. The XCR is the best suspension fork in the recreational range; damper action is smooth (better for off-road) and controlled. The XCR uses Magnesium lower legs to save weight.

Shimano Alivio hydraulic disc brakes provide smooth and reliable performance in dusty, gritty or muddy conditions. For smaller hands, the brake levers can be adjusted in so that they are positioned closer to the handlebar. The key reasons why riders choose hydraulic disc brakes are:

Much less maintenance compared with mechanical brakes. Ever 12 - 18 months (depending on how often you ride), you’ll need to replace the brake pads and perform a bleed.

Way better stopping power in all weather conditions.

Better modulation; riders can reduce stopping distances without skidding and locking the rear wheel.

When you pull on the brake lever, much less force is required to pull compared to a mechanical brake lever.

Also note that we only have XL frame sizes. These will suit riders 183cm and over.
